They didnt give me the option of doing it on my rib, but I dont see why I couldnt??? Might take it down there in the morning.
I took the new rib out on Sat, and all was fine, except the front of the thing is too high. When it comes on the plane I had to sit up on my tool box, but when travelling at low speeds, I had to stand. That was on my own. When my mate (110kg) sat right at the front of the boat, it was much better, but still a touch high. Therefore, my question to you is this? What should I use as ballast? Or should I install a seat/petrol tank arrangment further forward than the steering console? And the compartment right at the front of the boat - whats the best thing to use in here as ballast. I was thinking sand bags, although due to the size of the compartment, I doubt I would fit many in. Advice is much appreciated as this was the 1 and only problem on an otherwise brilliant maiden rib voyage.
BTW - the rib is a Valiant 5.7m with Mariner 115bhp outboard.
